Long time, no blogpost.
I pulled my head out of the waters to update you on what’s been going on!
On the 3rd of December, I attended the Luxury Beauty Brunch hosted by Tayo Afolabi of World PR Media at the Mystiquee Perfumery in Lekki 1.
I was late (as usual!), but it did not stop me from enjoying the few minutes I spent there. I arrived just in time to listen to Temitope Omai, Vienne Odofin Daniel and Solange Boccovi speak. 3 out of 5 is good, right? Yay me!
Temitope Omai, the founder of Mystique Bespoke Perfumery, introduced us to the world of scents. Quick quiz, how many types and categories of fragrances do we have? Do a quick study and improve your perfume buying skills!
Vienne Odofin Daniel talked to us about the importance of strategy for Fragrance brands. The one key thing I learned? Guerlain is NOT pronounced ‘gwehlein’. Imagine that?! Do you know the correct pronunciation? Also, learn to say NO. Sometimes, it takes boldness to create campaigns like BOSS, the Scent for Her.
Brand Manager of Ghandour Cosmetics, Solange Boccovi introduced the “Scent of Africa” perfume and even gave us the opportunity to experience 5 of the raw materials that made up the beautiful scent. She further went on to describe the perfume as a blend of sophistication and elegance that pays homage to Africa and celebrates the rich identity of the African Woman. Discovered something called Ylang Ylang here… coolest!
There was wine served by Dominio Del Rey and there was cake by iBakeSignatures…
I had a great great great time! and I can’t wait for the next Luxury Beauty Brunch.
